Book Description

The final piece of the Derrick Storm trilogy from #1 New York Times bestselling author Richard Castle, available exclusively as an eBook short.

Derrick Storm is back-this time, with a crack team of ghost CIA operatives. These former agents have all faked their own deaths and now work for the CIA on a strictly secret basis, taking on dangerous and illegal jobs the agency may not officially carry out. They're headed to the Molguzar mountains to look for sixty-billion dollars worth of gold hidden by the KGB before the collapse of the Soviet Union, and taking a perilous detour to rescue FBI agent April Showers from a sociopath torturer. But Storm's loyalties are put to the test as the mission begins to unravel into a bloody mountaintop showdown, and he and Showers must find out the hard way that their assignment may not be what they thought it was

2.0 out of 5 stars Pulp fiction at its worst August 9, 2012
By silne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The editing is atrocious, with spelling and grammatical errors throughout. There's even one spot where one of the characters is referred to by the wrong name!

The plot is one-dimensional and predictable. Anyone with half a brain could see the ending coming a mile away.

The entire series feels like it was written and edited in a hurry. Definitely not what I've come to expect from Richard Castle. I hope Frozen Heat has spent a lot more time with the editor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting story August 22, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition
A lot of action packed into a short story but the editing & vocabulary issues detract from the overall enjoyment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Storm does the impossible... August 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was enjoying the Kindle book until I realized that Storm had truly done the impossible: Trapped in a cave, he stopped behind a rock and . . . "Using it to shield his body, he peed over its jagged surface."

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book but.... August 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed the book and the previous two short stories but I think I would rather have the entire story at one time. I enjoy the Castle books as well as the show but would love to get the rest of this book at one time and more Storm books in the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars A quick read September 7, 2014
By Sharp
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Derrick Storm is once again embroiled in espionage and counter espionage. The book is short -- as advertised. For a short work it packs a punch, but can't deliver on the depth of story that you find in the full length books. The characters are shallow, the plot line is singular. If you are looking for something you can pick up and read in one plane ride, this is perfect, but if you want a book that really pulls you in and takes you along for the ride, I'd recommend Castle's longer works.

3.0 out of 5 stars What to do with $500,000,000. pounds of gold bullion. August 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A group of people are assembled to locate five million pounds of what they think is gold bullion hidden in a cave in KazakistanThis gold is supposedly from the Communist Party just as it was floundering in 1992. Several of them work for the United States government and met before in Tangiers in unpleasant circumstances.

They hike from Uzbekistan over a mountain into Kazakstan and find a cave with a large body of water in the place their map says the gold is buried. Then there is a lot of turmoil with guns and deaths. We never learn what happens to the gold and we never learn what happened in Tangiers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy a free rent July 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Good story but too short. Could have been longer. But worth the free rental from my library. Hope future books are longer.
